    Are you "Mature"?
    Then I'll bet you'll recognize yourself in most of these:

    1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
    2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
    3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
    4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
    5. Was learning cursive really necessary?
    6. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
    7. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
    8. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
    9. Bad decisions make good stories.
    10. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
    11. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
    12. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
    13. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.
    14. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
    15. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
    16. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
    17. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
    18. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
    19. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
    20. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.
    21. I would rather try to carry 10 over-loaded plastic bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
    22. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
    23. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
    24. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
    25. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
    26. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
    27. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?
    28. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
    29. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate bicyclists.
    30. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
    31. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my a** everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

    #29 and #31 are my favs! For #29, I have been complaining to my hubby (who also happens to be a bicyclist) about them for the last week! They are out in droves and riding two and three abreast on a busy road! Don't they realize that my vehicle is larger, faster and more solid than thier
    vehicle...yet they ride like they think they have an invisible force field around them!
    Thanks for my laugh for the day! I identified with too many of those!

    That's too funny! I like 16, 25, and 29. 2 doesn't really apply. LOL I decided to quit after DVD's. 29 has to be my very favorite because when I used to work (at a university) you'd be surprized just how many cyclist can't see a car (with a turn signal blinking and brake lights on) making a right turn. Of course it would help if they weren't reading the book on the handle bars. Do you know that they'll actually dent your car when they hit it? When I got a new, nicer car that I actually cared about I started turning a little faster. LOL

    I can TOTALLY RELATE TO THE FOLLOWING:

    1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
    *I think they should also take care of your sewing/quilting/hobby supplies so no one REALLY KNOWS how much stash you had!

    2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
    *"THIS" has Never happened to me!

    10. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
    *It's ME = It"s ME!!!

    23. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
    *Me! Me! Me! That's why I stock up on Oreos and Snickers!

    25. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
    *YES YES YES!!!

    26. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
    *Ewwwwww! Yuck!

    27. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?
    *I think some are FAILING COMMON SENSE 101.

    30. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
    *Sometimes I ask a question, get an answer and 2 minutes later can't remember the answer and have to ask the question again!

    Thanks so much for posting these cute TRUTHS!

    Yep, I've done this too many times.

    I have never in my life hit the snooze button on purpose. I always set my alarm as late as possible because I would hate having to be woken up twice (or more) when I don't really want to get up. Once is enough! I have hit it while dusting and have to reset it back to 0. What a pain!
